March 2019 – And the Oscar goes to…

Dear Teacher,

Bohemian Rhapsody and Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper were among the winners at last week’s 91st Academy Awards – this month we publish the worksheet for ‘Shallow’ and the updated Queen Diary (2019-2020).

As well as the Oscar, this song also won the Golden Globe for Best Original Song. Regular contributor Mena Bianco has submitted a worksheet looking at Question forms.

The 17th March is St. Patrick’s Day! This fun worksheet for the song originally recorded by American folksinger Bill Staines looks at animal vocabulary.

The Tune Into English Roadshow

The feedback for the 2018-2019 Tune Into English Roadshow tour has been extremely positive – thank you to all who have hosted the show this year. The tour will make its annual trip to Spain (including a show at the Universidad de Huelva) and visit four regions of Italy in March – I look forward to meeting you and your students.

The Queen Diary

The 2019-2020 Queen Diary (August-July) is now available, updated to include Bohemian Rhapsody’s four Oscars. The title song features in this year’s Roadshow, and I was left speechless by a recent performance by the students at the Liceo Percoto in Udine – you can watch it here
